  1. Few things in life will ever affect us more deeply than the death of a parent. Not only do we have to endure the intense pain of  loss but we are also left to face a future that will likely be quite different from what we had expected. The Bible assures us  that death will be no more. May such promise  help you to cope with the loss of your  Mother. My deepest sympathy to each of you.

    Revelation 21:3-5
    John 5:28,29
    Psalms 37:29


  3. Jody: we are so sorry to learn about your mother’s passing. Lida told us about it when we went to eat dinner at Toni’s. We will keep you in our prayers. We miss seeing you at Toni’s on Saturday nights. Take care. From the three church ladies and the occasional guy you served.
